    Another kneejerk reaction to curb imports and control prices.

    $1,100.00

    Summary

    On 13 April, many ports in China were reported to have started a ban on imports. There were two events that day that likely led to the ban. In the morning, the National Bureau of Statistics in China released 26.7 Mt of coal import for March and, later that day, SXCoal published daily coal prices at RMB570/t for QHD FOB 5500. There are many questions to answer: Why did China start the ban at this time? How did current imports and prices weigh on the decision for a ban? Are further restrictions expected? What is the impact in seaborne market?

    India coal short-term outlook March 2018: growing economy sorting out the pains for coal imports

    • 10 April 2018

    Improved industrial production supports coal demand as Ministry of Coal seek alternatives to improve domestic supply

    $1,350.00

    Summary

    Index of Industrial production grew more than 7% in December and February. Cement production was up 20%, steel production 5% and power generation 6% during December to February period as compared to the year before. This was all on a low base, as late 2016 and early 2017 was impacted by Demonetisation in November 2016. However, all this growth resulted in a 5% increase in coal demand over the same period. With several factors supporting India's growth story in 2018, we look at the potential impact of this demand on the seaborne market for thermal and metallurgical coal.

    Global metallurgical coal short-term outlook March 2018: Supply availability improves and prices recede

    • 10 April 2018

    With more supply available, metallurgical coal prices started to decline in mid-March. However, Aurizon’s rail maintenance poses some risk.

    $1,350.00

    Summary

    With more supply available, metallurgical coal prices started to decline in mid-March. Prices were stable at about US$230/t in the early March and fell by about US$40/t by the end of the month. Aurizon’s rail maintenance poses some risk to export levels in the near term as work is moving to the Goonyella line. Over the remainder of the year, numerous global mine expansions, extensions and re-openings will apply downwards pressure on prices.
